If you are a person who loves to move, go where you can practice your favorite sport as much as you want. Don't take too much luggage. Pack only the essentials. Organized excursion groups are a nightmare for many people seeking peace. So, if you are really looking for peace, large and impersonal hotels, choose intimate guesthouses and private accommodation, where you will not encounter hundreds of tourists.

It is very difficult to relax when, for example, dozens of guests come to the hotel restaurant for breakfast or dinner at the same time and there is an amazing buzz. It is also not easy to relax when the pool is crowded with flashy amateurs.

During a slow holiday, try to wake up all your senses: observe the unknown with as much attention as possible, look for new tastes and smells, if you are abroad, listen to the rhythm of a foreign language. If something fascinates you, stop and observe, let it be, for example, a beautiful view …
